‘Far From the Apple Tree’ Review in ‘Eye For Film’

Grant McPhee’s film draws on these traditions for a film that is distinctly Scottish in character yet echoes mythology from all around the world. It’s set in one of those generationally inhabited large country houses decorated with curiosities from all around the globe, a place that reflects colonial history yet conjures also the sense of a modern world colonised by an uncanny something deeply rooted in the human soul.
